Carrie Symonds 's Lulu Lytle-inspired makeover has caused uproar, but the 32-year-old apparently saw the lavish Downing Street overhaul as necessary to rid the Prime Minister's residence of the 'John Lewis nightmare' left behind by former occupant Theresa May , according to Tatler. It came as a painful blow to fans of Britain's favourite department store — and an unfounded one. For while the 157-year-old company may have a reputation for being safe and suburban, look closer and it offers plenty of chic, timeless pieces.

A staggering 1 million people will be dragged into paying the higher rate of income tax by 2025 thanks to the Chancellor's plans, they warned - taking the total to 5 million. Paul Johnson, from the IFS, warned that further tax rises are likely to lie ahead and said it was a "tale of two budgets" as the Chancellor extended several support packages including furlough for months to come. He said the tax burden is set to rocket to levels not seen since the 1960s, and warned gloomily: “It is possible we'll see even bigger ones over the next few years”. Mr Johnson said: “Take account of the cuts to planned spending announced in the Autumn and Santa Sunak, … [Read more...] about Budget 2021 news – NHS nurses’ FURY at ‘pitiful’ 1% pay rise after covid created toughest year in living memory
BE honest: how's your work wardrobe looking? Shirts and tops are often the garments most of us concentrate on when buying pieces for work, but with spring just around the corner, now is the perfect time to make sure you've got a stylish selection of trousers for the season that will look smart and polished—whatever your profession.

If you work in an industry that's a bit more active and hands-on, utility styles with plenty of … [Read more...] about 11 best work trousers for men: from smart tailoring and casual fits to heavy-duty styles, our essential guide
MEGHAN Markle was rushed out of a Fijian street market after a security risk cut her visit short today. Security swept the pregnant Duchess away, ending her walkabout on Wednesday morning amid concerns over the huge throng of royal fans outside. The 37-year-old was being given a tour of Suva Market when her bodyguards intervened. One onlooker reportedly said Meghan appeared to "look concerned" before entering and “looked really disengaged, not her usual self at all”. She then apparently whispered something to one of her aides before being whisked away. The witness told the Mirror : "She stopped to speak to a pineapple seller on one of the stalls and had a very blank and disengaged look on her face, which is very unlike her.

Back in 1986 I made a film for the BBC science series Tomorrow’s World about a remarkable new class of drugs called statins. Studies had shown that statins could cut people’s risk of heart disease by lowering their cholesterol levels. It was all very exciting. Thirty-five years on and statins are now one of the most commonly prescribed drugs in the UK, with around eight million people, including me, taking them daily. Yet they continue to be dogged by controversy and fear of side-effects. Studies had shown that statins could cut people’s risk of heart disease by lowering their cholesterol levels.
